|Completion of the A.A. General degree to include the following prerequisite courses for the major:|
|ART1201C||Design Fundamentals I|
This course provides an investigation into the dynamics of various organizing principles while exercising both traditional and contemporary media. Students explore the visual elements and fundamental principles of design in order to determine the constructs of order. Elements of visual literacy are also used to explore issues of symbol and human communication. Process and development are emphasized. This course is suitable for both the art major and non-art major. Lab fee required.
While acquiring various hand skills, the student addresses traditional and contemporary problems of representation and composition. Observation, analysis and organization are the basis for draftsmanship. This course includes studies of line, plane, mass, volume, perspective, chiaroscuro, form and density. Additionally, students are introduced to a wide variety of drawing media. This course is suitable for both the art major and the non-art major. Lab fee required.
|ART1203C||Design Fundamentals II|
This course involves the formal understanding and manipulation of the basic organizing principles of the three-dimensional world (point, line, plane, mass, volume, density and form). Students learn how to create and construct three-dimensional situations using basic hand tools and inexpensive, readily available materials. Three-dimensional design also involves the relationship of perceptual issues to manipulation of three-dimensional situations. This course is suitable for both the art major and the non-art major. Lab fee required.
The student uses skills gained in Drawing I to explore the development of a personal vision with regard to drawing concepts and visual composition. Color is introduced along with a painterly attitude toward depicting observational form. Drawing of the human figure is introduced with an emphasis on gesture, visual analysis and anatomy. Drawing skills are adapted into contemporary artistic concerns including the use of series. Lab fee required.
|ARH2050||Art History I|
This course is an integrated study of the main developments of the visual art forms (architecture, sculpture and painting) from Paleolithic man to the Early Renaissance. World art will be integrated into the content. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|ARH2051||Art History II|
This course is an integrated study of the main developments of the visual art forms (architecture, sculpture and painting) from the 16th century to the present. World art will be integrated into the content. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|DIG2000||Introduction to Digital Media|
This course explores the avenues of contemporary digital design, highlighting the importance of process, innovation and communication. Students will become familiar with design projects ranging from traditional print, sophisticated websites, interactive digital media and motion graphics. The course will focus on developing and refining the design concept and the execution strategy. Lab fee required.
This is a course in the process of expository writing. Students will read essays and compose papers that are unified, organized, logically developed and supported, clearly stated and well-focused. Research techniques are introduced and incorporated into at least one composition. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030. Students must pass the core assignments with a grade of "C" or higher.
In this course students develop the ability to read literary texts critically, to think logically and creatively and to write and research effectively. Students must pass the core assignments with a grade of "C" or higher. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|SPC1608||Introduction to Oral Communication|
The purpose of this course is to improve the basic skills of speaking and listening. Class exercises emphasize preparing and delivering public speeches, speaking with clarity and variety and listening with literal and critical comprehension.
